Where does a cataloging-only library display on WorldCat.org?

Applies to
  • WorldCat

Answer

Cataloging-only libraries will display as a basic listing on the All Libraries tab

Library types that display on WorldCat.org
Cataloging-only libraries that self-identify Academic Library, ARL Library, Public, Consortium, Group, Library Network or Processing Center, Archives, Museum, Dental Library, Medical Library, Health Library, Hospital Library, Nursing Library, Veterinary library, Law Library or Music library will display as a basic listing on the All Libraries tab.

If a library does NOT want to display, we can add library symbols to an “Opt Out” table to suppress them from displaying on the All Libraries tab.


Library types that do not display on WorldCat.org

Cataloging-only libraries that self-identify as Corporate, Special Library, Collection, Correction Facility, Other, Program, Project, Regional Service Provider, School Library, Unknown, Vendor, Government, and State or National Library are suppressed at this time. We made this decision to ensure the privacy of these libraries was protected.
